And all because you see value in every piece you save.

Nothing wrong with that.

We need to show some of the uses from some of those saved items we have put to good re-use.

Like a square electrical box salvaged from an older replaced A/C unit disconnect, and a cord cut off an old dust sweeper, makes a nice 4 way outlet added to a work bench.

Tell us about some of your own.

Rather be driving than waiting for modifications
Somebodys' bad answer, should prompt someone else to give the right answer, but no answer at all helps no one.

Best thread ever.

Former owner of my house was a scrapper and I've been uncovering buried items on my land from 20 years ago.

I'll have to think twice from now on.

I'll be hitting up the scrap yard for sheet metal for my floor pans soon!

Yep, save the bucks where you can :)

Anybody else have something?

Nothing too small.
